[racket-dev] P4P: A Syntax Proposal

From: Neil Van Dyke (neil at neilvandyke.org)

These most recent examples with "let:", "let*:", and "letrec:" highlight 
that users of P4P still need to know about Racket semantic distinctions 
that other languages don't provide the programmer. (Instead, they might 
have a more familiar "var" or "def", for example.)

So I bet that Racket code in P4P is still looking obtuse to many of the 
same people who refuse to try sexp syntax.

(I'm not discouraging this P4P line of inquiry, and I'm curious to see 
where it goes.)
